(HAMILTON, ON) – Women’s basketball is taking centre stage as Ontario University Athletics (OUA) is proud to announce the major award winners and all-stars for the OUA West division. The recipients of the six major awards represent five different schools.

Windsor Lancers guard Miah-Marie Langlois caps off her OUA career by being named the OUA West defensive player of the year for the third year in a row. She has also earned the CIS defensive player of the year in each of the past two seasons.

Langlois lead the CIS in steals with 83 this season, while guiding her hometown Lancers to an OUA best 50.2 points allowed per game. She added 128 rebounds plus 15.3 points per game while continually being tasked with guarding opponents’ top backcourt players. Langlois also becomes a first team all-star for the third year in a row.

Windsor Lancers head coach Chantal Vallée is no stranger to postseason accolades. 2013-14 marks her ninth season at the helm of the Lancers and also marks her fourth OUA West coach of the year award. Vallée guided the Lancers to a 21-1 regular season record. Her squad led the OUA in both points scored (83.0 PPG) and points allowed (50.2). Additionally, four of her players received all-star honours this season.

Joining Langlois on the West division first team is perennial all-star Jessica Clémençon from the Lancers.

Clémençon, of St Rambert, France, a former OUA and CIS player of the year, earns the distinction of being a first team OUA all-star in each of her five seasons. This season she scored 18.2 points per game and added 7.7 rebounds to lead the top-ranked Lancers in both categories. Clémençon wraps up her OUA career second in all-time scoring with 1,894 points, and eighth in career rebounding with 807.

The OUA West second team features one former all-star, a former rookie of the year and three fresh faces.

Windsor Lancers guard Korissa Williams lands on the second team in back-to-back years. This season, the Windsor native averaged 14.3 points per game for the potent Windsor offence.

Jumping on board the all-rookie team is Windsor forward Cheyanne Roger, from Windsor.
